I see. If you can use basic JavaScript, you could present an initial
"Search by:" select menu with "Instructor", "Class name", etc. As
items are selected, you would dynamically display the appropriate
select menu immediately after this control.

This would be very accessible and would avoid the situation you
described because the user would only see the items in the select menu
based on their selected search filter.
